DNV has the in-depth and multi-disciplinary competence required to perform materials selection and further to decide on the most appropriate material combination to be used for the applications in question.
The main objective of performing material selection is to identify materials having sufficient mechanical and corrosion properties to withstand the expected service environment without failure throughout the design period.
By utilising this service, the client will know with a high level of confidence that the materials selected for a given system will have the required strength and corrosion resistance.
DNV will give recommendations to how the candidate materials should be qualified and tested in order to limit the risk for any failures to occur during e.g. installation and operation.
Based on experience, hands-on information from testing and available software facilities, DNV provides effective assistance in most of the aspects relevant for cost-effective selection of materials.
